Very interesting. I learned much in this discussion forum. When I do take anything for pain (which isn't very often) I usually take Aleve. Thanks for sharing the info on Motrin, Ibuprofen, & Advil.

Good to know. May explain why my blood pressure suddenly shot up when my doctor told me to try ibuprofen to help relieve the pain in my knees from osteoarthritis. Still on the BP meds, because without them it doesn't get back to what it should be. My doctor did take me off the ibuprofen straight away, but he just never told me why.

Amina.

I don't take anything for pain. I have heard so many time that taking OTC medicines and BP medicines can have terrible side effects. Thanks for sharing.

Watch me closely, Lord. I'm hungry, and I'm weak.

I also discovered that ibuprofen increases my BP, and, like Pitter6, was able to switch to naproxen (Aleve) without that side effect. Actually, all of the so-called NSAIDs have the potential to increase BP, but everyone is different -- so being aware of the possibility and using caution is important. If you need pain relief but aren't able to take the NSAIDs, Tylenol may work for you (but use caution if you drink alcohol); otherwise there are other prescription meds that can be used that don't have the side effect of raising blood pressure.

Thank you for sharing this information. I don't use those, as I'm allergic to them, so I say, "Thank God, for those allergies!"

Be blessed,

emoticon people shake their head when I tell them that I can't take Advil or Motrin. but everyone takes them, they say. I wish there were more info on over the counter drugs, but it's in very small letters on the box, if at all and most people throw the box away. there are a lot of problems mixing with certain med's also. I can take Equate(Walmart) Naproxen Sodium. So far it has not effected my BP.

Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my 2014 weight goals of 60 pounds.

If you are using this drug and have any risks of hypertension, beware. I took it last October while traveling for my back pain and overnight, my pressure shot up to 220/110, had to get emergency care and return home to my own doctor. I'm saddled with high blood pressure ever since.
Now I am recovering from a severely abscessed tooth extracted Monday. but over the weekend was desperate for pain relief so of course I risked taking Motrin again. It relieved pain but it has taken 3 days for my bp to return to normal even on my bp med Losartan.
The manufacturer now lists hypertension as a known side effect, which they were not doing last year. Ibuprofen/Motrin is also found in Advil...please take with caution
